Tomorrow October 30th from 4:30-7:30pm is the 9th Annual Halloween Fest! The night before Halloween, the VP Towne Center suddenly becomes the happy haunting grounds for young ghosts, goblins, a few pirates, some skeletons, and lots of princesses who have escaped from their local castles. Plus, a mysterious green witch has appeared, year after year. Her cackle is so loud that it scares the bats out of the trees and right on to the Rotary grill. Seems this witch must be a good one, though, as she is always offering to help with judging of the costumes, dunking for apples with the kids or finding sweet treats for them. She has even been seen making sure that the grilled Batwurst is prepared to Ghoulia Child perfection for the Rotary Club Monster Munch. Does she live in a haunted house in our town? Or, has she just re-possessed one? All youngsters will have the opportunity to uniquely decorate their own pumpkins and enter them in the ANNUAL PUMPKIN DECORATING CONTEST. Come take a look at all these phenomenal works of creative expression! A highlight of HALLOWEENFEST is the continual parade on the VP stage of the interesting COSTUMES in search for the CONTEST winners. Close by there will be an opportunity to CREATE a HALLOWEEN CRAFT for only $1.00. No tricks will be necessary this evening as costumed youngsters will have the opportunity to VISIT LOCAL MERCHANTS for TREATS throughout the Towne Centre. For more substantial fare, several organizations and schools will be selling pizza, hot dogs, roasted corn, kettle corn, etc.
